Social Work With Addictions shows the reader how to facilitate change in drug abusers. The book locates addictive behaviour within a set of interacting systems, taking the wider social context into account in its discussion of the individual with a problem. The practical implications of approaching addiction in this way are explored and methods are explained for working with individuals whose orientation towards treatment can vary from steadfast resistance to desperation for a solution. The methods described are particularly suited to generalist health and welfare workers who confront drug addiction in the course of some other, often more pressing problem such as domestic violence or homelessness.
